Why I became a Personal Finance Coach
Before becoming a Personal Finance Coach, I worked for over a decade in marketing alongside other fellow office professionals. A repeating theme I observed towards the end of each month – with payday just around the corner – was how relieved many of my colleagues would feel as their monthly funds were all but depleted. This situation is far from rare, however: as much as 70% of the country’s workforce are living paycheck to paycheck.
It’s in my nature to want to help and I knew I had the knowledge and skills to do so. Seeing good, hard-working people genuinely troubled by their finances, I desperately wanted to help people to see that money management really doesn’t have to be as complicated as we’re lead to believe. There are simple and effective strategies to better manage money, allowing you to avoid the stress resulting from money mismanagement while feeling secure about your financial future at the same time.
But who wants to receive unsolicited advice on their personal finances?
I understood that seeking help with personal finances is something people have to come round to on their own terms. When would-be clients have concluded that ‘there must be a better way to do this’ and have arrived at the point where they’re open and determined to turn their financial situation around, then I can step in to provide effective guidance and education that brings both immediate and long-term benefits.
I find it truly rewarding to help individuals who work hard but live in a system where we’re never taught real-world finances in schools and rarely by our parents, who received little financial education themselves.
Like many others, I also received no financial education in school or at home and I’ve had to figure it all out for myself. And, like everyone, I’ve made and learned from my own mistakes along the way. These temporary setbacks have helped me to grow and even helped to further fuel my passion for understanding personal finance and psychology around modern spending habits. You can rest assured that I provide non-critical and non-judgemental coaching as I’ve made my own mistakes; whatever your money problems, I’ve likely been there and done that too!
